Splicing and Mooring Strop Workshop
Plus the St. Piran’s Supper
Friday March 2nd 2018 17.45 and 19.15

We had a successful and well attended supper and quiz in January so we hope members will also support this next social event, St Piran’s Day is on March 5th so what better way to mark the County’s and the miner’s patron saint than raising a glass of something and enjoying supper with friends! Also on offer is a practical and informative session where you can observe splicing and the making of a mooring strop and or make your own.

Charles Evans is running the workshop which will start at 17:45 and finish just before supper is served, he outlines the session as follows;- the splicing session is intended for those who want to make mooring strops, and will therefore only cover eye splicing in 3 strand nylon. Prior to attending the session, members should measure the length of strop required (cleat to bow roller or fairlead plus one and a half or a maximum of twice the vertical height from bow roller to hippo) and determine the maximum size of strop that the fairlead can accommodate.

Charles will bring some old pieces of rope for practice only, plus a small supply of 24mm nylon, a size which is suitable for boats up to 32ft. Owners of larger boats are recommended to use something heavier. Please do not bring old or hard rope - it is very difficult to splice. Bogey Knights emporium at Mutton Cove can supply 28mm nylon at £3.50 a metre and will provide short lengths of old fire hose (to reduce chafe) free of charge. He can also provide thimbles and many other wonderful things. He does not usually stock plastic tubing which is available from most chandlers; the variety without wire reinforcement is preferred.

Members wishing to book for the splicing and mooring strop session must do this by emailing Charles Evans dr.cwevans@gmail.com. Any queries on strop size, construction or anti chafe can be raised in the same email.
Apply early because numbers will be restricted.

Please book for the supper book as soon as you like and definitely by Monday February 26th (Cost £12.50pp)
